Excellent product from acer, better than acer aspire 5 A515-51G
5 November 2018
Good laptop for this price range,Bottom top case is Aluminium, No bloatware installed.Most importantly no heating issues Very smooth heavily locked down version of Linux preinstalled.
It came pre-installed with Endless 3 (linux)os, Excellent battery backup for this price range, sometimes touchpad gestures not working by default. If you need gesture control, then you need to enable it from the bios.average sound quality no premium feature enabled like hp and dell laptops, screen is 1080p Matt display. After Windows 10 installation you must update the bios and video driver(Intel UHD 620) from the acer support website.
Windows 10 Redstone 5 update is working like a charm.
Laptop quality is average, for this price range it is a okay product.
If you need a good laptop for long-term you must go for hp or dell brand product.
The major pluses in this laptop is 8TH gen core i5 processor, USB type c port USB 3.0 power off charging, M.2 SSD upgrade option and semi-aluminum metallic body etc.
Price to performance ratio is great 👍👍👍
It's GDP is only 15Watts, so battery backup is great like ultrabooks
Otherwise this laptop is a average product only.
Note: after installing Matlab 2017b it's speed was reduced by 80% so beware guys...
Fix: the above issue like the system slowdown is solved by doing a full defragment of hard drive. Never defragment if you are using a ssd.
Conclusion: this laptop is only for basic needs only, professionals must avoid this laptop.
After installing all the necessary Softwares and updating drivers including bios you must defragment your mechanical hard drive to fix the system slowdown.
I purchased two laptops for some testing purpose,but I found it is not for professionals...
Speaking of the display, its LCD screen is not a IPS display panel so viewing angle is a problem for you guys. The display in this laptop sucks.
If you got it at a deal price for 29k to 33k it was a good purchase, but
If you purchase this laptop for normal price at 42k you are doomed, you are wasted your money guys, keep this in your mind before purchasing this laptop.
No premium audio feature
